Estimating Rehabbing a Roof

4 Replies

Hey guys,

Anyone change their roof in the past two years here in the bay area? I wanted to find a way to estimate roof rehab.. 

Maybe for composite shingles roof how much it would approximately cost per sq. ft.

thanks.

Hello @Harris L.

Ive gotten a few new roofs in the last couple of years.  

As a rough estimate, figure about $5/sf assumming the house is between 1200 and 2000sf.  

If its much bigger or smaller the $/sf can get skewed.  As an exaggerated example a roof for a 100sf house would be much more than $500 and a 10,000 sf house would cost less than $50,000.  

For a typical house $5 will get you in the ballpark.  

Happy investing!
